 Filing Period Opens Soon for 2 City Council Seats

Yukon residents interested in running for a City Council seat will soon have an opportunity to, if they live in one of the Wards with an open seat. Two city council seats will be part of the City of Yukon elections in February. Openings in Ward 1 and Ward 2 are up for election.

Filing for the positions starts at 8:00 a.m. Monday, Dec. 4, with candidates having to complete a declaration of candidacy. The declaration will need to be filed through the Canadian County Election Board Office, 200 S. Bickford Ave, El Reno. The deadline for filing is 4:30 p.m. Dec. 6.

Primary Elections for Wards 1 and 2 seats will take place Feb. 13. If there are no more than two candidates for each vacancy, or if a candidate wins by over 50 percent, the Primary Election will take the place of the General Election. Otherwise, the General Election will be held on April 3. 

The Wards 1 and 2 seats have geographic boundaries the citizens must reside within. Ward 1 is primarily in the southeast quadrant of Yukon with the northern border of Main Street, the eastern border halfway between Yukon Parkway and Sara Road, a partial southern border of Vandament Avenue, and a partial western border of Cornwell Dr. Ward 2 is also in the southeast quadrant of Yukon with a partial northern border of Vandament Avenue, the eastern border halfway of Yukon Parkway, a southern border of NW 10th Street, and a western border of Holly Ave.
